   Our 5 month trip came to an end today as we returned home.  It was a great trip. We went almost 5000 miles, were in 14 states, and met some wonderful people, saw some neat places and experienced several new foods and experiences such as riding on a train and kayaking. Bus ran great. Only problems were a transmission front seal leaking (that will be addressed shortly) and a relay that failed (minor inconvienence).  Sure love that Jake Brake!
   Tomorrow we start finalizing the final details for Bussin' 10.  Jack

I find that seeing over the next hill is about the best theopy a person could find, I'm glad you enjoyed it, it's only beginning and each trip gets better and better.  Next year you'll have to see our area, it's kinda nice too, besides our mosquitos need the blood donars, poor little critters are so weak they just walk now, course it's hard to fly with long underware on. lol

Nice to hear you had a great trip Jack & Paula. It always feels good to hear a good report, especially after all of your hard work in the re-power. Now get on to planning that rally! Wishing you the best rally ever!

Jack & Paula great to hear you've landed safely!
I wish things could'a worked out where our paths would'a crossed. But they will someday! The most important thing is that ya'll made it safe and sound, and had a great time! Grin

Jack,

Five months is a long time, but hey, we are building these things to take us places not collect dust....

Glad we were able to see You and Paula on both ends of your trip.

Be safe!

Wow, 5 months is sweet forsure!
Inspiration for this build, set out on a trip unplanned and let the coach take you away!

Looking forward to our spring launch, thanks for sharing!
